Judge shields Wynn ev­i­dence in in­quiry

The Sun Herald (Sunday) - - News - BY KEN RITTER


A Ne­vada judge says doc­u­ments about al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual mis­con­duct against former casino mogul Steve Wynn will stay se­cret, at least tem­po­rar­ily, de­spite Mas­sachusetts Gam­ing Com­mis­sion ef­forts to make them pub­lic.

Com­mis­sion lawyers, its in­ves­ti­ga­tions chief and an at­tor­ney for Wynn’s former com­pany Wynn Re­sorts didn’t im­me­di­ately say Fri­day in Las Ve­gas whether the rul­ing will stall a de­ci­sion about the suit­abil­ity of the com­pany to run a $2 bil­lion casino and ho­tel near Bos­ton.

Clark County District Court Judge El­iz­a­beth Gon­za­lez ex­tended a tem­po­rary ban on re­leas­ing doc­u­ments that Wynn’s lawyers say are con­fi­den­tial.

The Mas­sachusetts com­mis­sion ob­tained the doc­u­ments in an in­quiry of how the com­pany han­dled re­ports that Wynn en­gaged in sex­ual mis­con­duct with fe­male em­ploy­ees.

Wynn de­nies wrong­do­ing. He sued in Novem­ber to keep the doc­u­ments se­cret.
